    This is going to be shocking. If you look at a a three way label this is what you see:

    ACTIVE INGREDIENTS:
    Dimethylamine Salt of 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acid* ……………………………………….. 30.56%
    Dimethylamine Salt of 2-(2-methyl-4-Chlorophenoxy)propionic Acid* ……………………… 16.34%
    Dimethylamine Salt of Dicamba (3,6-Dichloro-o-anisic Acid) *** ………………………………. 2.77%
    INERT INGREDIENTS ………………….. 50.33%
    TOTAL ………………………………100.00%

    Most of this product is “unlabeled” I personally have always thought that it is most likely a “filler” like water. I could not have imagined that this is something potentially harmful. Afterall, it is registered with the EPA.
    Its official, I may have been duped, the smoke is about to clear from the mirrors I beleive.
    “When used at labeled rates this product does not pose an unreasonable risk to children or pets.” I have said this thousands of times to thousands of homeowners……..God help me.
